Television and the media: the almighty inventors of false realities.

"I know the secret of making the average American believe anything I want him to. Just let me control television...You put somemthing on television and it becomes reality. If the [real] world contradicts the images [on television], people start trying to change the world to make it look like the images [on television]." (Hal Becker)

"They must find it difficult: those who have taken authority as truth rather than truth as the authority." (Gerald Massey)

"If it is not in the media it did not happen. If it did not happen but is in the media we believe it has happenned." (Charles T Tait)

hi
have a look at www.medialens.org
they have excellent analysis of the UK media - I think they may have penned some of the israel bias study too (may be wrong on that though). cheers
